The RAPZ (Recreation, Arts, Parks and Zoos) tax is on the ballot this year for renewal this year. The tax was approved by a large margin originally, and is a tax of a tenth of one percent, a small portion of which is given to the state for collection purposes, the rest is put toward community organizations in Cache Valley.
Those against the tax say it is a small tax, but it is a tax, which should not be raised or renewed in tough economic times. Those for the tax say some arts organizations, which enrich our community, would die out if not for this tax. You can join the conversation here on our website, or on Facebook and Twitter.
